Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

THE Ash­ford-based In­ter­na­tional Glau­coma As­so­ci­a­tion is pre­par­ing for one of its busiest pe­ri­ods of the year.

Each year the char­ity high­lights the need for reg­u­lar eye tests to check for the dis­ease by or­gan­is­ing Na­tional Glau­coma Aware­ness Week, which this year runs from June 7 to 13.

As part of the na­tional cam­paign it will be vis­it­ing se­lected towns in Kent from June un­til Septem­ber to an­swer ques­tions about eye health and glau­coma, and raise aware­ness of its free ser­vices.

The road show will visit Ash­ford’s County Square shop­ping cen­tre on June 10, 11 and 12 and Folke­stone high street on July 22, 23 and 24.

The char­ity, set up in 1974, has been at High­point Busi­ness Vil­lage, Hen­wood, for five years.
